MY WHITE COAT MEANS A GLOBAL COMMITMENT
To me, cura personalis applies not only to the patients we see, but to the global community in which we all live. When I wear my white coat, I am reminded of the commitment that I’ve made to promoting public health and caring for others at the population level, both locally and abroad. It is a symbol that allows me to take my education from the classroom and apply it to the hospital setting and beyond. It reminds me that I have the ability and the responsibility to contribute to a global movement toward better health.
